Fashion Friday: Beach Essentials

Well, we’re off to the beach for the long weekend.  I’m hoping we didn’t leave anything.  I always consider this my trial run, since it’s the shorter of the beach trips we’ll be taking this summer, and if anything is forgotten, at least it will prepare me for the longer beach trips later on.  If any of y’all are headed to the beach, as well, I thought I’d prepare a list of beach essentials that are important for any beach trip!  Plus, getting my list together made me get more organized for packing, which is always a huge plus!  If I’ve left anything out, let me know!  I already realized I forgot to include a photo of my camera, beach toys, hat and iPad.  Anything else?

Bathing suits for the whole family, life jackets for the boat and swim diapers for E.

Sandals and flip flops…to be broken in πŸ˜‰
And running shoes, if feeling motivated enough.

Croakies, Kindle, Magazines, Books, Sunglasses, Crackberry, Aloe, Suntan Lotion
Water, Lipgloss, Polish and plenty of DVDs for the road trip!


Matching dresses for each night.
Cannot wait to get there, and hit the beach!  Friday nights there have always involved a shag band.
I’ll be sure and take lots of photos to share next week.
 I hope y’all have a wonderful weekend full of relaxation and fun!


P.S. Head on over to my sisters’ blog (#2 of the 6), Mama Messages.  After a couple of bumps along the way, she has some AWESOME news to share with y’all!!  Also, while I’m at it, one of my other sisters, Amy (#5 of the 6) has a blog too.  She and her roomie share recipes they make, while in graduate school.  Head on over to Heads in the Books, Still Time to Cook.  Still can’t believe she eats such diverse food now.  Seriously y’all, she grew up eating strictly hotdogs (do NOT toast the bun) and choco tacos (when we’d head to Mexican restaurants) because she was such a picky eater.  She swears studying abroad in Florence changed her.  I’m glad it did!
